CRISPR is revolutionizing agriculture but modifying fruit remains challenging. Here’s how scientists are working to overcome that barrier – Genetic Literacy Project

One of the major advantages of CRISPR-CAS-edited crops over the classic genetically modified (GM) crops is that the former does not contain any foreign DNA, making them indistinguishable from those developed by conventional plant breeding.

Viewpoint: Mandatory labeling of crop biotechnology-derived foods is a failed regulatory policy. Here’s why – Genetic Literacy Project

Proponents of mandatory labeling of foods containing or derived from genetically modified (GM) crops have long claimed that their primary objective is to facilitate informed consumer choice.

CRISPR is 10: A decade of gene editing refinements presents new ways to address ‘ agricultural diseases thought to be incurable – Genetic Literacy Project

Because CRISPR applications promise so many benefits, we are impatient to see them realized. Indeed, we may complain that the development of CRISPR therapies is too slow.

Study: How gene-edited crops are regulated around the world – Genetic Literacy Project

To date, many countries have made decisions on the regulatory status of products of genome editing, by exempting some kinds of edits from the classical GMO regulation. However, the guidance differs between countries even in the same region.
